Thank you for your interest in our Foundation Programme. If you want to develop your abilities as a leader driving really positive change forward in your organisation, then you’ve come to the right place!

I’ve spent most of the last thirty years helping people create high performing workplaces that are also great places to work, where people realise their full potential. We call this ‘Workplace Innovation’ – a concept we created with our European partners – and are proud that it has become a powerful movement of business leaders stretching across the world, and recognised by governments in a growing number of countries. We’re proud too of our great team, who share the passion for making Workplace Innovation happen!
